My challenge to all you whacky folk is to work out a chop cup routine using a pot noodle as the cup, a sachet of the sauce that comes inside as the ball, and a fork as a magic wand.

At the end of the routine, the pot noodle should be sealed a la Paul Harris.

Have fun

Having lived in Japan awhile, and also to keep in the noodle mode, I'd want to use chopsticks instead of the fork. But then the fork is kind of just an accessory unless you worked it in to the patter.

Open the powder pack enough to get a thin slice of neo in there and reseal it.

You could use a soy, duck or mustard sauce packet, too. Open the sauce packet and get enough iron filings in there to be able to be held against the cup with a magnetic ring and reseal the packet. If the resealing has problems holding the fluid without leaking, I'd make sure the inside of the packet has a nice dark color to it, refill the packet with two part epoxy glue, shape it to look right, and let it dry. And make sure to have enough new sauce packets to switch out with.

Use a magnetic ring from someone like Harry Allen at Daytona Magic, or a small neo under a band-aid.

Also boil up some noodles right before the performance, let 'em drain VERY WELL and store them in a wide mouth thermos. Be great if you could find one large enough to fit a complete noodle cup into.

So, all the prep work done, talk about the convenience of instant noodles. Open a package, dump out the noodles (you may have to prep this in advance since they might stick to the inside surface of the cup), and get the neo'd flavor pack. Or switch a real one in the cup for a palmed one.

Announce that you found an even MORE convenient way to cook the noodles than a microwave- your magic fork/chopsticks. In fact, it's so good you don't even need the provided noodles. (dispose of the dried noodles).

Put the neo'd flavor pack on the table, cover with the cup and after a few failed attempts, slide the pack up the inside of the cup with the magnetic ring. Vanish it, but be disappointed that the noodle meal did not appear. Get rid of the flavor pack by just holding the cup over your lap while you talk (I hope you are seated for this) and switching the cup from the magnetic hand to the other. Packet falls into lap.

Announce that you forgot to season the magic noodles and cover a sauce pack with the cup. Go through the one-two-three disappear deal again, and announce that darn it, you must need to use more sauce. While reaching for more packets, lap the sauce-loaded cup and swap it for the hot noodle cup in your lap. You DID use a towel in your lap if the thermos isn't big enough to hold the hot cup, right?

Bring out the hot cup while still reaching for more flavor packets (or a bottle of something), and stack it all on top of the hot cup.

Some more magical passes, maybe this time with the help of your magic fork/chop stick if you haven't used it before, some more words of wisdom, then let the spec. open the hot noodles.

Viola! Lunch.
